Color Challenge!

I love a color challenge!  This week's Sisters In Stamping theme is a color challenge:  Pool Party, Early Espresso, and Whisper White.  This is a GREAT color combo - very sophisticated and classy, I think!

I love this amazing satin ribbon, so knew I wanted to use it.  I also have been wanting to use my new Mediterranean stamp set.  This set reminds me of my trip to Greece and Italy - wish I were there now!  Anyway, I decided to try several techniques on some watercolor paper.  The best ended up being using a blending pen and pulling ink from the stamp pad.  I'm horrible with a water painter, so...I'll keep trying!

Here is the card I made.  It isn't well colored, but it'll have to do for now ;) 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

It's Bunny Season - My Favorite Time of Year :)

Today, the Sisters In Stamping are featuring Easter projects.  I love this time of year because there are cute bunny things in abundance!  This is because I have had pet rabbits for 25 years, I love seeing all things bunny :)

I decided to make a little treat box for my project.  I used the Baker's Box Thinlit, and cut it out Emerald Envy DSP from the In Color Designer Series Pack.  I used the new Basket Bunch stamp set to stamp the basket bottom, bunny, and sentiment.  I then die cut the basket, bunny, and bow using the accompanying die set Basket Builder Framelits.  I used the Banners Framelits to die cut the sentiment.  I "tied" it all together using the Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine.  I filled the little box with Easter M&Ms.  Not only are they pretty colors with speckles, they are larger too!  Did I say how much I love this time of year????

Here's my project:

Please check out the other projects here!

Thanks for looking and have an awesome day and weekend!

Hello, Cupcake!

Today, we are all about cupcakes :)  The Sisters In Stamping are celebrating cupcakes with projects featuring them.

Here is the card I made:

I decided to use my cupcake punch and highlight my cupcake by popping it up with dimensionals within die cut circles on my cardstock.  I love this color combination - Melon Mambo, White, and Black.  I also stamped the sentiments and punched them out with my banner punch.  I "tied" it all together with this cute Melon Mambo ribbon :)  Cute and simple!

Hope you have a weekend full of cupcake goodness!

Thanks for looking!

Hello Friend!

Happy Friday!  Today's Sisters In Stamping theme is a "Hello Friend" project. 

This is the card I made:

I thought this image of Bella and her little turtle friend was perfect.  I also used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set to create the banner with the words "Hello Friend" and then punched it out using the Duel Banner Punch.  The background paper is from the Festive Birthday DSP - such happy colors :)  I used my SU! markers to color in the stamped image and then embellished with some matching Emerald Envy Enamel Shapes and Ribbon. 

Reach out to a friend today and tell them you are thinking about them!  I was lucky enough to spend some time with two great friends today - one, a total surprise (shout out to Michelle!!!!)

Have a great rest of the weekend and thanks for looking!

Laugh Out Loud!

Today is National Let's Laugh Day.  I love this one!  There is nothing better than letting loose and laughing.  Feels great, doesn't it?

I have some really cute stamps that make me laugh.  So, I decided to make this card.  It combines a couple of my favorite things ;)

Hope you find yourself laughing today!  Have a good one and thanks for looking.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Everyone!

Today, the Sisters In Stamping are celebrating the day by sharing projects that include green (Debbie's favorite color!)  Check out what the other ladies created here!

Here is the card I made:

I love this Emerald Envy color.  It's beautiful, isn't it?  I also thought I'd make some four leaf clovers made with hearts.  The sentiment just stuck out to me and I thought it was perfect for this card, so I stamped it, die cut it, and adhered it!

Here's a cute little poem I found on this site.  Enjoy and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Leprechaun Kisses

Just a bit of Ireland
That I’m sending you today
To bring you luck and happiness
On this fine St. Patrick’s Day
It’s a wee and tiny present
Full of good luck and good wishes
Seems the little folk of Ireland
Have sent you some
